About
Think Hard Solutions

Think Hard Solutions is a consulting firm that focuses on HR transformation and the implementation of Agile concepts for HR teams and talent management practices.  This can include a full spectrum of support from a facilitated session to bring awareness and clarity to a leadership team to a full-blown transformational support plan.

Our frameworks will push you to think hard about your business, your team, and your talent practices while getting support from a true partner who knows corporate HR and what you’re really managing.

We aren’t an Agile firm, we’re an HR firm.  We have experience managing and leading all aspects of HR from the tactical record keeping to strategic talent management, so we know that the transformation also needs to be practical.

The need for transformation is real, but it doesn’t have to be overwhelming or impractical.  You know your organization best.  Let us help you assess your organization and plan for transformation on a timeline that is sensible.

And for the small businesses or start-ups that may need some guidance on how to proactively think through the set-up of a modern HR function that is conditioned to always add value, let’s talk!
